Homecoming 2022

Thousands of alumni returned to campus, Oct. 27-29, to celebrate their Wildcat pride and reconnect with classmates.

A Weekend of Wildcat Pride and Spirit

Homecoming weekend kicked off on Thursday, Oct. 27 with the Lighting of "A" Mountain and 50th Reunion Mixer, both at MSA Annex in downtown Tucson. On Friday night, we celebrated with the exciting Homecoming Bonfire and crowned Brandon Fuentes and Vanessa Addison the 2022 Homecoming king and queen.

A special thank you to the Class of 1972 for raising more than $1.8 million as their Homecoming class gift!
